Under the watchful eye of the Carabinieri with their distinctive dark bleu uniform, you will be allowed to admire one of the most beautiful Gothic piece of art in Florence. Built in the fourteenth century thanks to the generosity of the noble Florentine families, the Great Cloister is decorated with a cycle of frescoes depicting the stories of San Domenico and other Dominican saints, executed between 1570 and 1590 from more than fifteen different painters of the Florentine Academy working together and celebrated for other, similar collective achievements. Their number included Alessandro Allori, Santi di Tito and Poccetti.
